The Royal London Hospital | Award & Vepps®

"An ideal choice when procuring a washroom package of this complexity."

“Venesta's product is both quick and easy to install. This, combined with an experienced CAD and manufacturing team made them the ideal choice when procuring a washroom package of this size and complexity.”
- Marcus Lynes, Shire Integrated Systems Ltd (installers for Skanska)

The Project.

The Royal London is a leading, internationally renowned teaching hospital and St Barts is a centre of excellence for cardiac and cancer care. Each hospital celebrates a rich and varied history and retains their unique character. Two of London’s busiest hospitals, they provide a full range of local, emergency and specialist services.

The Challenge.

Both hospital buildings were huge projects in their own right. Project contractors, Skanska, appointed Shire Integrated Systems as the subcontractor, who specialises in the installation of washroom systems. Venesta was chosen as one of the few companies with the capability to supply high quality specialist healthcare washroom products throughout the two hospitals.

The Solution.

The quality of our service was crucial to the success of this project. The client had total peace of mind, knowing that deadlines could always be met, even when faced with unforeseen problems on site. We appointed a full-time project manager to oversee the surveying, scheduling and production drawing of every unit supplied. By specifying Vepps, our industry leading pre-plumbed (IPS) system, installation time was reduced by 50%.

Award washroom cubicles are a versatile, economical and easy to assemble solution that works well in both wet and dry environments. WC cubicles in pastel green with light grey powder coated aluminium fittings provided the perfect combination of good looks and durability. Vepps Boxed-Out units with pre-plumbed scrub up troughs, disposal units and clinical sinks were all specified in Solid Grade Laminate (SGL). Thanks to the flexibility of Vepps, we also delivered fully-functional, pre-plumbed showers and shower cubicles.

SGL is extremely robust, hardwearing and has impact resistant properties, ideal for infection prevention in a hospital with such high footfall. This heat and scratch resistant material is totally impervious to water and can endure the heavy duty cleaning and strict protocols expected in a healthcare environment.

With an estimated 300,000 patients contracting a HCAI in England alone, products from our Vepps Healthcare range were the obvious choice for The Royal London Hospital. The complete Vepps Healthcare range is HTM64 compliant and enables the very highest levels of hygiene and infection control.

It was a challenging and rewarding project. We are proud of the part we’ve played in helping The Royal London and St Barts provide their safe and compassionate care to the people of East London and beyond.
